This tented camp is an amazing gem of colours and views. Its like seeing the same pictures, but every time you open your eyes again, God changed the colours he used on the same pictures. The service and food is wonderful. The accommodation has been built without taking out trees. Well done!!!

Lovely "tents"( if you could call them that.) The paths leading throughout the grounds was charming. The staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good. It was a great starting point to venture further into Tanzania.

This is a very upscale permanent tented camp close to Manyara National park. We stayed here in March (Me, wife and 2 daughters, age 11 and 14). Very nice tents with good electricity and water. Nice en suite showers and bathrooms. Cannot drink the water, but bottled water provided. Plenty of escorts to get you to your tent at night.... More

We stayed at Kirurumu camps for our entire 8-day Tanzanian safari in late February and were very satisfied. Manyara Camp is a permanent tented camp (the other Kirurumu locations . . . Ngorongoro & Serengeti . . . are mobile tented camps) beautifully situated on the hillside. Our tent (#24) had a wonderful view of the lake. While it’s called... More

If you are planning a safari in Northern Tanzania, Kirurumu Lodge is a great place to spend a few nights in the middle or end of the safari, when you could use a little pampering and some clean clothes (they offer same day laundry service). We stayed two nights in February, 2014, and were very glad we did. Our experience... More

The food was very good The service was excellent. The grounds were amazing. Webster's should place a picture of the guest lodging under the definition of glamping. The space was large, the bed amazing. The bathroom was the best we had (including our stays at several nice lodges) and the deck/porch offered a great view of the Manyara Valley. The... More

After a long day of travel this tented lodge was a welcome sight. The tents were very comfortable and offered stunning views of the Rift Valley floor -- lush and green. Depending on your tent you might hear waterfalls in the distance, very relaxing. The bar area was quaint with spectacular views toward Lake Manyara. The dining area offered an... More

This is a beautiful tented lodge that served the most delicious food any place that we visited in Africa. The service in the restaurant was second to none and the food was fabulous. The tented lodges were large, airy,and fully netted looking out into wilderness so that you really knew you were in Africa! The bed was very comfortable and... More

We loved our room at this lodge. We had tons of privacy and an amazing view. The room was really spacious, had a fantastic bathroom (unlike some of the lodges we stayed at on safari) and a great deck looking out over the valley. The restaurant's food was also very good. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. The grounds... More
